Artist and photographer Deborah Hanan will be teaching a two day workshop on the weekend of the 25/26th June, offering an introduction to an historic photographic technique, otherwise known as “Cyanotype”. This printing process enables a photographic image to be fixed onto a variety of paper types using sunlight. The resulting “photogram” is blue in colour and was historically used in the cataloguing of flora and fauna as shown above.
During the course of the weekend you will work with a range of natural objects such as flowers, feathers and leaves to produce “sun prints”. Over two days you will have the opportunity to develop your work and experiment with black and white photographic negatives, either supplied or you can bring your own (medium format to large format works best). Anyone wishing to supply their own objects of choice may do so; items such as jewellery and glass bottles give pleasing results. A variety of paper sizes can be used as the blue cyanotype emulsion is painted on by hand, making it possible to create a range of wonderful outcomes.
